See Lupita Nyong'o Terrified Of Snake In Instagram Video
Video shows actress looking petrified as she holds reptile during Vogue photoshoot...
Lupita Nyong'o might be an Academy Award-winning actress, but she is completely unable to hide her fear of snakes in a video she's shared on Instagram.
The 31-year-old star of 12 Years A Slave was working on a Vogue photoshoot when she was asked to wear the reptile around her neck.
And despite an obvious terror of the creatures, she duly obliged as the handler stood nearby.
Looking petrified, she waits just long enough for the snake to be removed before ducking her head and running away.
She captioned the clip: "@voguemagazine #bts: rehearsal for the snake shot. Nobody said being on the cover would be easy. #FightYourFearAndWin. (DOP and laughter by @rscapellan)"
Lupita is set to appear in Star Wars Episode VII.
